Swiss advanced solutions supplier ADB has unveiled CloudHDS, a cloud-based multiscreen system.

CloudHDS enables existing and new entrants to the over-the-top (OTT) space to deliver OTT content, as well as broadcast content if there is a suitable gateway, to all connected devices and selected set-top boxes (STBs). The cloud solution uses the HTML5 standard.
Based on ADB's expertise in hybrid delivery, CloudHDS is reported to bridge the gap between linear TV and broadband and bring a comprehensive, virtual STB experience to connected devices.
The solution is targeted at any multimedia service provider requiring an OTT play, including traditional content providers, OTT content providers and content producers who want to reach end users directly.
CloudHDS complements the recently-launched ADB Multi-Screen, which uses a hybrid model blending broadcast and broadband delivery with home network content redistribution to deliver a multiscreen service at home and on the move.
